Book Description New York City, NY: The Library Of America, 2005. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 671 pages. Published in 2005. Volume Two of The Library of America's definitive Collected Works of Philip Roth. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Printed to the highest standards on acid-free paper, utilizing sewn binding, closely woven rayon cloth boards, satin bound-in ribbon marker, and a page layout that is both readable and elegant, each volume is guaranteed to last for several generations of readers and collectors (despite frequent and regular use, the estimated life span of Library of America Editions is 1000 years; un-used, they will last forever). Each volume is scrupulously edited and annotated by Ross Miller. Presents Volume Two of The Collected Works of Philip Roth. Four works which show the range and originality of Philip Roth's fictional art. "The range and inventiveness of Roth's fiction is dazzlingly displayed: The somber and penetrating realism of 'When She Was Good' (1967); the daring verbal wit of his comic masterpiece 'Portnoy's Complaint' (1969), which made Roth a reluctant literary celebrity; the unrestrained political satire of 'Our Gang' (1971), his Swiftian takedown of the Nixon administration; and the fantasy of 'The Breast' (1972), featuring the debut of Roth protagonist David Kepesh as he endures a metamorphosis worthy of Kafka or Gogol" (Publisher's blurb). "One knows when one is reading something that will permanently enter the culture" (Cynthia Ozick). "Our foremost novelist since Faulkner" (Harold Bloom). Philip Roth was only the third writer to be so honored by The Library of America while still alive. Published in chronological order, the entire oeuvre consists of ten volumes in all and will surely be regarded as one of the "high spots" in The Library of America Series. Roth famously announced in 2012 that he has permanently stopped writing. Philip Roth died on May 22, 2018 of congestive heart failure, literally of heartbreak, at the age of 85. An absolute "must-have" title for Philip Roth collectors. This copy of Volume Two is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip Roth. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First "Library of America" Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws, have the bookstore's stamp, or are subsequent printings yet command hundreds of dollars. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Six of Philip Roth's novels were selected as among the Top 20 works of American fiction of the last 25 years: "American Pastoral", "The Counterlife", "Operation Shylock", "Sabbath's Theater", "The Human Stain", and "The Plot Against America". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP ROTH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1931082804. Signed by Author. Seller Inventory # 17734
